Using "Tracker" to Prove the Simple Harmonic Motion Equation
Kinchin, John
Physics Education, v51 n5 Article 053003 Sep 2016
Simple harmonic motion (SHM) is a common topic for many students to study. Using the free, though versatile, motion tracking software; "Tracker", we can extend the students experience and show that the general equation for SHM does lead to the correct period of a simple pendulum.
